The Australian Sailing and Cruising Club is a club for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people and their friends in Sydney and across Australia. We welcome boats and boaters of all types – sail, power, dinghy, windsurf, kite, kayak – if it floats, you’re welcome to join in!
The Club is based in Sydney and organises regular events during the year both on the water and the land – guests and visitors to Sydney are welcome – you don’t have to own a boat to be a member.
Our Social meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, at the Trovata Restuarant (76 Stanley St, East Sydney, 1st floor). All are welcome.
Note also, that is the weather is good on other weekends, there is a decent chance that some member’s will be taking their boats out for an “unofficial” event, usually planned last minute, once forecasts are available.
Let`s all get together for lunch at waterside Sydney Flying Squadron on Sunday November 10. Celebrate the new Club year and catch up with people you may have missed for a while. It’s our “Welcome Back” lunch.
ASCC will welcome you with a drink and nibbles. We’ve booked a communal table for lunch and kept it simple :- no prepayment or limited choices, just order from the Menu and pay individually. A main plus entree or dessert is around $30-35, drinks are available from the bar at reasonable Club prices.
SFS is the historical and current home of 18ft skiff racing on Sydney Harbour, a great place to visit combining sailing tradition and up to date dining and bar. The ideal harbour spot for a Spring lunch.
We don’t need pre-payment but we do need to know if you are coming so we can book a suitable table size. Please contact Fran on 0400 833 731 if you will be attending.
SFS is at 76 Macdougal St, Milsons Point. Easy to get to, park on the street, walk from North Sydney or Milsons Point stations, or come by ferry. It’s next door to the Ensemble Theatre.
For anyone interested in joining a gay flotilla holiday in the Caribbean this is your chance.
A group from the U.S. is organising a “Gay Armada” bareboat charter in the Virgin Islands in February/March 2014 in a mix of yachts and catamarans from Sunsail.
Cost is approx US$ 1300 / person + airfare. Qualified skippers sail free.
